Toddlers delight in the yummy goodness of desserts, just as any child (or sweet tooth) does. But many of the ingredients often seen in desserts aren’t right for little tummies, containing too much sugar amongst other naughties. These dessert recipes for toddlers are healthy and delicious, with sweetening substitutes and lots of fresh fruits. From smoothie recipes for toddlers to cakes and puddings, these desserts for toddlers will prompt squeals of excitement, introducing your child to a balanced and still nutritious relationship with treats from a young age.
